'll regret if they rush into something that turns out like obama care was, to be very different than what was advertised. >> grover, let me give you break for a second and bring in my panel here who have been all diligently waiting patiently and quietly. joy, david brooks writes in the "new york times" a budget stalemate on these terms will confirm every bad republican stereotype. so republicans have to realize they are going to cave on tax rates. the only question what is they get in return. that is david brooks writing that in the new york times. your thoughts? >> absolutely. republicans have managed to box themselves into exactly the stereotype that democrats presented about republicans and have been for a long time, which is that they only care about protecting the top 2%. protecting those top 2% is the hill they will die on and only thing that matters. it's interesting and you try to get grover norquist to, you know, explain whether or not ending loopholes and deductions which they won't be specific about is the same as a tax hike this is the same guy a year ago, grover norquist, sai
. >> if the republicans would give up on 2% tax rates nobody would have to worry about anything. >> bob, obama-care already taxes the middle class. the majority of the country do not want to be taxed. what they don't know already is everybody is getting a tax increase because of obama-care. people get the government spending too much. they want spending cuts. i will give you this, though. when you start to talk about specific cuts, people say don't cut my entitlement. that's the difficult issue in washington. but democrats have to wake up. martha: when you look at the 2% you are talking about. now it's 2%. when you look at it. who they want to have taxes raids on the white house. it's not a fiscal policy. is that a punishment orifice cal policy? >> i don't think it many a punishment. not in and of itself which is why you have to couple that with three times as much spending cuts. these people have had the best of the best for the last 20 years. when there is a tax bill they get favored. it's time for them to give a little back. andrea says all these people will be hurt. they will be hurt because he
. it actually... of course, the affordable care act, obama care, does a lot to curb the long-run growth of medicare costs. there's actually a lot in there. he's actually done more to bring down the cost curve for medicare than anyone has ever done before. but in washington that is considered not serious if he's not actually taking been anies away from people who need them. it's a really weird they can. you inflict pain on vulnerable people. obama is very serious in the real sense. the notion he hasn't done anything is totally unfair. he's done more than anyone has ever done before. >> ifill: let's talk about one part of the republican, you want to put area quotes around it, plan. that's the idea of raising the eligibility age for medicare. why isn't that something that might actually be a big first step? >> first of all it's very small amounts of money. congressional budget office put it at a little over $100 billion over ten years. that's trivial. it doesn't save very much money. 65- and 66-year-olds are young seniors so they don't cost a lot actually. they don't have the health proble
a man with his scrunchy. does obama care more about owls than jobs? it is a better question if you understand the language of middle earth. >>> must we kill owls in order to save them? in order to protect the endangered spotted owl seen here, i think that is it, the obama administration is locking up about 10 million acres of mostly federal land in the pacific northwest. it grabbed thousands of timber workers along with related support jobs. the area continues to suffer high unemployment. despite years of government meddling the disappearing bird is disappearing faster than ever. one solution, taking out the owl. the u.s. fish and woild life service had proposals that included luring the owls into close range, using recorded couls and an owl decoy. it can ensure rapid and inhumane death. how is the relationship between owls and cats? >> once we start going toward this gay marriage thing we will have owls and cats giving together. >> all right, dan, why not let these birds go extinct. they don't seem to be cutting it anyway. >> i love the fact in the article it talks about how the b
contributor lanny davis. you're a big government guy and you like obama care. you bi believe in big governmen. you've 54 beautiful christmas trees in the white house, two outings playing government since the election, you've got a 20-day vacation that's going to cost the taxpayers millions going to hawaii, and yet people are without homes and power, and families are getting kicked out of hotels, lanny davis. where is this ever-loving government that's supposed to take care of everybody? >> well, first of all, the tragedy of what those people are going through, they need more help. >> where is it? where is the president that came up the week before the election? where is he? >> well, he should be doing more. i agree with that. >> he should be. >> the people of new jersey saw what he did for them, and the governor of new jersey, a republican, was grateful for what he did, but it hasn't been a perfect performance. >> that was week one in the middle of the cleax. >> we're a month after the election. we need to do more for those poor people. i would point out to you that your double standard about
grover. >> understand how ugly the next four years are going to get. everything in obama care that obama didn't want you to focus on or think about, the 90% of his trillion dollar tax increase, was pushed over until after he got himself safely re-elected. all those regulations you're now hearing about, okay, that are being -- those all hit after the election. we got four bad years of regulation taxes, he wants to add higher taxes to that. tea party two is going to dwarf tea party one if obama pushes us off the cliff. >> there's a dr. strangelove. how many republicans will be willing to stand up to that threat? david corn is here to talk about it, the washington bureau chief for mother jones and the author of "47 percent." he's a member of the gridiron society. and john feehery is a republican strategist. grover -- you're playing defense here -- one man elected to nothing. the fact that saxby chambliss comes up, i don't have to live up to some pledge i made 20 years ago and calls up and has grover on the phone going through the transcript of what he said and he's apologizing for each segm
abandon obama care just like congress got rid of hilary care, had a stable dollar remember in the mid-'90s the dollar was as good as gold. no massive regulations. we had some deregulation in the 1990s compared to what we have today. and spending on a proportionate basis i would take that trade. >> keith what's your comment on steve forbes. he'll allow those top rates to go up if you all -- if the democratic party endorses the kind of lower spending deregulation sound money platform that is often attributed to bill clinton. do you regard that as a forbes compromise? what's your take on that? >> i regard that as a misreading of history. for several reasons. first it's not class warfare when president obama went to go back to the same tax rates when we created 22 million new jobs. secondly when president clinton actually did pass the tax increase in 1993, every single republican voted against it. they all predicted doom and gloom and not only did we create the 22 million jobs, but in addition unlike what steve forbes said the economy grew. gdp was 3% to 4% over the next two years. it's not tr
have to sacrifice, and then they are avoiding higher taxes in obama care, as you point out over the break, nothing to do with the fiscal cliff, it is with health reform that they are avoiding. david: and these are the same people, the people who say we should pay more money who are saying there is no relationship between taxes and my business decisions. well, look at all the companies that are accelerating their dividend payout this year because taxes are going to go up. it is in direct contradiction to what warren buffett and others are saying that tax policy has no interference at all in business policy. of course it does. it always has. it always will. stuart: i think it's about 175, 180 companies are paying a special early dividend. david: including of course oracle. billions and billions and billions -- the only good thing about it is that it's happening right before christmastime and a lot of people are going to use all this new cash in the economy in order to buy things for their families. so i think december is going to be a very rich month in terms of consumer spending.
. >> no, why would they? >> i don't necessarily think president obama cares that much either. his leg legacy is about obamacare, redistribution. and you can't control the economy. you can divide the pie better, but it will have these cycles. bush messed things up. i did the best i could, but he'll redistribute and that will happen, we'll spread the wealth around. and i don't think he cares that much about it. >> you don't think he cares about -- >> his chief of staff during the cry says said you'll be -- this is job one, the crisis. and he go that's not enough. he wants to be transformative. i don't know. we'll see. i asked the first time around why isn't he more concerned with job growth, private sector, business, the economy. >> he is putting more stimulus in. >> that's smart. 25% spending or -- >> i'm saying that will be the line you get from the white house, that we're putting more stimulus into this, we're looking to protect the middle class to make sure they can continue to spend. >> at 25% of gdp, i wouldn't think about anything except trying to rein in government. >> the truth
already had $716 billion in the affordable care act, which added eight years of solvency. president obama proposed $316 billion in additional savings. and you can do hundreds of billions in savings. so absolutely. >> a lot of liberals in your party will vote against it if there's any significant cut in the entitlement spending. >> we know that there are savings that can be found in medicare and medicaid. but what we have to make sure of is that a priority in any deal, you don't balance this first on the backs of the middle class. you have to make sure we have significant spending cuts, balance with an increase in rates. we can do tax reform also, but in order to get the certainly the middle class needs, we have to make sure that revenue is part of the package. >> i want to play a clip of the president from bloomberg tv today suggesting do a modest deal now, punt and do a bigger deal next year. listen. >> we're not going to be able to come up with a comprehensive tax reform package that gets it all done just in the next two weeks. we're not going to be able to come up with necessarily a co
the one who led the fight among attorney generals around the country i believe against obama care. he's the one who filed the lawsuit. >> those of us who worked on healthcare have a big stake in this guy. not being the governor of virginia. absolutely. he, i think -- he was the first in virginia. he wasn't part of the multi-state lawsuit that florida ran. he had the separate lawsuit. and funny story, i was covering the supreme court hearings when they were here in -- hearing the healthcare case. i said mr. attorney general, can we speak to you. what did you think? because he was inside. he said where are you from? i said i'm from think progress. his face went all slack. he was like think progress? you guys just lie and distort prop prop -- propaganda and -- >> i didn't know it was going to turn out that way. >> bill: oh, man, all right. igor volsky with us from think progress. check him out at thinkprogress.org. so one other issue that you got into yesterday after the tragic murder suicide for the kansas cit
. in terms of medicare and medicaid, you will see for upper-income under obama-care, that has been done. if you make over $250,000, if you will pay a tax. -- you will pay a tax to fund that thing. the democrats and an enormously new program that has $600 billion of taxes over a decade that are beginning to kick in. if you go to a tanning salon, if you buy a wheelchair, there will be taxes, and if you are a high- income investor, you will already hit with taxes. host: are those of included and budget proposals? guest: we think some of these things should be open for negotiation, but we lost the election, so the president will not do a full repeal. having said that, there are areas we have worked on before, trying to get rid of 1099 forms, and democrats said that was a dumb idea, and the president signed that repeal. we will continue to work, but this thing is a backer fiscally for the country or the next decade and that will become progressively more evident. host: linda. your honor with representative tom cole. -- you are on with representative tom cole. caller: i do not understand how
were. this is what i'm saying. democrats have to be careful. barack obama supporting a democrat in 2016 does not mean that democrat's going to get black and latino votes. these democrats are going to have to have solid programs that appeal to these constituencies and fundamental relationships and not be dependent upon the president to carry that water for them. we saw it in 2010. it didn't work. probably won't work again unless these democrats have their own ideas. >> but, david, the democrat in 2016 or even the democrats in the midterm in 2014, i agree, can't depend on the president to deliver votes from latinos or african-americans. but the republicans not being able to expand can only help a candidate win that without having to do much of anything. >> and they're not going to be able to expend in the next two years. it's interesting that tonight these speeches, and i think marco rubio is giving one, too, the kemp foundation. some of us are hold enough to remember jack kemp who was a republican who i think sincerely believed that some conservative ideas, in terms of homeownership and

and more efficient. and when president obama signed the affordable care act in march of 2010, last year there were some really solid smart changes that were made to the medicare system to make sure that the cost per patient will be moderated but not that we would cut benefits or kick people off the program which is what the republicans are proposing to do saying people who are 65 and 66 would no longer be eligible under their proposal. on this chart, which i brought along with me this afternoon, is based on standard & poor's, dow jones index which tracks medicare's program every single month in terms of per capita spending. it shows back recently as 2005, 2006, per capita expenditure for medicare was actually quite high. it was over 7% per patient. and that obviously is an unsustainable level under almost any circumstance. but over time it moderated. and then this red line shows the day that president obama signed the affordable care act which put a number of really intelligent changes into medicare, promoting preventive care services, prescription drug coverage, making sure people will

unacceptable and a non-starter. president obama just sat down for an interview with bloomberg and says the tax rates -- the republicans say don't raise rates. but let's close out loopholes and get rid of deductions. all you should care about is how much revenue you are getting. why do you care fit' a rate or deduction. increase the revenue. president obama says no i need rates to go up on the rich. now he's saying rates have to go up. they have to go up on the rich. but then we can talk about lower them again next year. we'll chat. we'll have more time then we can discuss the loopholes abductional earn tough deductions to rates. >> we are 400 days away from the first primaries of the 2014 elect cycle. every day we get closer to those primaries the likelihood of a big deal, something large taking place gets less. so the president is saying there, never minds. what he's saying there -- he knows the political reality of this, having suffered the worst mid-term defeat of any president in 60 years. he knows what happens in mid-term elections. what he's saying is give me what i want now and i'll tal

they are going to do that. the american people could take a careful, hard look at that plan and they found no mer merit in it. >> this thing called the ryan plan, president obama continues to take his case to the american people who rejected the ryan plan. today he answered questions directly on twitter. one person asked, why won't keeping tax rates low across the board encourage more hires and therefore, more tax revenue? the president responded, high-end tax cuts do the least for economic growth and cost almost $ 1 trillion. extending middle class cuts boosts consumer demand and growth. the white house released a video today showing how president obama has been consistent on his message throughout the last couple of years. it was central to his campaign. >> we need to give tax relief to working families trying to raise their kids to keep them healthy, send them to college, keep a roof over their heads. that's the choice in this election. that's one of the reasons i'm running for a second term as president. >> how quickly we forget. in the words of secretary timothy geithner, this is why republi

that the president does have the better argument. >> at the end of the day, president obama is selling a very simple message. i want to keep taxes low for middle class americans and i'm worry are in the position of looking as if they don't care about the middle class and just want to keep tax rates low for wealthy americans. >> krystal, it's grover norquist versus the polls, actually, the polls actually tell us -- a new cnn poll shows that 45% of americans would blame congressional republicans if no deal is reached and 34% would blame president obama. i don't think grover is going to turn that around. >> no, i don't think grover is going to turn that around and i don't think that he's right that tea party 2 will dwarf tea party 1. >> he is so wrong. >> but i do think that there is true to the fact that there is already a backlash from the ultra right, grassroot tea partyiers that are still out there upset with boehner over his initial position, which is still quite far to the right, as you and ryan talked about in the last segment, doesn't even include any increase in the top tack rates at all. it s

seemed and should be done different may is barack obama. go back to the campaign where he railed against backroom dealings or even with the health care reform talks and legislative talk came to fruition he said he made a significant mistake by abandoning pledges to transparency and going forward with do things differently. it seems there has that been done anything differently i not know if this promises were unrealistic but it in the area of one other story is of court-martial for bradley manning it with the source for wikileaks has led may have done in the year the 1800's you could see what happens in the courtroom but beyond that there is non transparency whatsoever. there are no documents or the legal filings the prosecution, defense, judge's ruling reading rapid-fire from the bench and good luck you cannot jotted down you will not get it. it is a bizarre way to proceed in courts where it is 13 the available. who with think they can be done differently? when it was military commissions at guantanamo bay with a political imperative to push a forward to the administration said in those
they really care about. if speaker boehner continues to ignore the senate-passed bill, i urge president obama to stand firm on his opposition to extending the upper-income tax cuts. the american people support that approach and we should not cave in to pressure. i'd also urge the president and congressional leaders to work to include the buffett rule principles in any deficit deal. letting the upper-income tax cuts expire and ensuring mult imillion dollar earners pay a fair share will assure the american people that we are working for them and not the special interests, as we allocate the burden of addressing our deficits. thank the chair. i yield the floor. i note the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: mr. whitehouse: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from rhode island. mr. whitehouse: can i that the pending quorum call be lifted. officer without objection. mr. whitehouse: i ask unanimous consent that the senate proceed to a period of morning business with senators permitted to speak therein for up to ten minutes each. the
who thinks they should be done differently as a fellow by the name of barack obama. if you go to mr. destiny campaign with background dealings or you look at what he said as the health care reform talks on legislation came to fruition in the beginning of 2010, he made a significant mistake by abandoning transparency and too much was done behind closed doors and going forward they would do things differently. seems to me we're forward and not doing things differently in connection with health care. i don't know whether promises are realistic or unrealistic, but it does seem we are somewhat short of the mark of what he promised. in the area of one other story i've been covering as a court-martial related proceedings for bradley manning accused of being a source for wikileaks. this interesting manner if it is somewhat like covering a court proceeding as one might have done in the early 1800s. that's the way strikes me. you can go up there and see what happens in the courtroom when things happen in the courtroom. beyond that, there is no transparency whatsoever. you can't get any docume
